Planetary Power Trio
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Remodels and reorganization efforts can be funny this way: You often have to make a mess before you can make an improvement. When things get crazy, push through to the "after" picture.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You face life with a thoroughly optimistic outlook even when the circumstances do not obviously favor you and yours. Your calm, measured approach allows for smooth dealings all around.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Hesitation isn't always fear. Sometimes it's a function of prudence, intuition or wisdom. Maybe you sense you're not ready, and there's no shame in that.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 9). This solar return is an uptick in love and abundance. Winning teams will be part of the fun. What happens to your group in February will lift you all. You'll get to make your own schedule in April, and this will be a game-changer. The spring lets you create, innovate and play while getting paid. Sagittarius and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 40, 20, 12 and 33.
COSMICALLY CURIOUS ABOUT... EMPATHS. Over the next three days we will cover three things an Empath shouldn't leave the house without. Besides the keys, wallet and breath freshener, there are things you're going to need if you're the sort of person who tends to be more affected by environments than others.
Tool 1: An intention you can get behind.
For people with sensitivities, there are many reasons to leave the house that seem joyless, ordinary or draining. Sensitive people are more affected by environments, so they need bigger reasons to take them on.
Banking or grocery shopping might seem like a nothing errand to some, but if you're sensitive, a few hours out in traffic, interacting under fluorescent lighting, having exchanges with people of all different energies and emotional levels... well, simple errands like this can take more energy. An intention that goes beyond the ordinary can turn the outing into a greater purpose or a fun game.
What if your intention was to smile at 10 random people in the world? What if your intention was to listen to an interesting podcast on the ride or to sing in the car? Intentions such as these will keep the mind of the empath -- which is creative and warm and needing a positive focus -- engaged in the higher vibrations of life.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Happy birthday to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (aka Kate Middleton), a Capricorn whose star is burning so bright that the entire world seems to be watching her every move. With Mercury and Venus in philanthropic Aquarius, Middleton is focused on the good of humanity. Meanwhile, her Mars, Saturn and Pluto, all in Libra, promise that diplomacy and tact will eternally stand the princess in good stead.
